Ohno from Arashi Takes Purikura in Drag

Happy New Year!

I went to Tokyo for New Year’s Eve and I had a TV in my hotel room. I was watching a program (Zip?) with Arashi on it on the evening of the first and Ikko gave Ohno Satoshi a challenge. Dress in drag and go to Shibuya!

I took pictures with my iPhone so sorry about the quality…

Everyone was really surprised at the first faraway shot, they said he looked just like a Shibuya gyaru. He had to walk the long way around to 109, take purikura and buy a crepe on the way, then go into 109 and buy sexy underwear for Ikko.

First stop was purikura. I hunted down the place he went to (Adores Shibuya) and added it to the purikura map.

NB The purikura map is now a tab at the top of the blog for easy access.

He used Rumor

He says he’s never taken purikura like this before.

As soon as he was inside he started scratching at his tights and pulling at his heels… it’s tough being a girl!

Then he gets ready for the pictures…

“How do I do this?”

He thinks he is cute…

He gets into it…

He thinks the final results are cute too…

I agree!

I was actually really shocked at how much like a girl he looked! It looks like he has a big eye setting (probably the recommended as he has no clue what he’s doing) and it’s sharpened his chin. I’m tempted to show this to guys to see if they think ‘she’ is cute!

He didn’t do any decorating on the purikura, maybe because of time or maybe it was too fiddly to bother with.

He also had to dodge some real high school girls while he was there but I doubt they would have recognised him.

In the rest of the segment, he got a crepe with a high girlie voice (and proper polite Japanese) and went to an underwear store where he mumbled about feeling like he was doing something really bad. I think the staff rumbled him as a guy but probably not who he was.

Anyway, the power of purikura can turn this…

…into this…

I wonder if I can persuade a guy friend to try it…

    1. I imagine he's used to doing crazy things for his job by now! They do seem to like making the boys cross-dress!

    1. I doubt he'd have much of a choice, there's probably a cross-dressing clause in the standard Johnny's contract!

    1. I'm sorry I don't, Arashi forums/blogs would be your best bet I guess!
